Administrator control over Confluence Notifications

As a space administrator,

  • If I add users to a space manually (e.g. not using the Team members field on space creation, but through Administration/Space Permissions/Manage Permissions), will these users become automatic watchers of the space?
    • Are only specific user types (e.g. Admins) automatically setup as automatic watchers of the space
  • Can a Space Administrator remove another user from watching the site?

My goal is to setup spaces and add users to the space WITHOUT automatically adding them to watch the space (the email notifications are just too noisy!).

This widget could not be displayed.

We added no email storm  (free addin for server).

This give you options - save the page or save and notify watchers.
